Server Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate in Edmond, OK
Declined Offer
Negative Experience
Easy Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at Outback Steakhouse (Edmond, OK) in December 2017.

Interview

I arrived 5-7 minute early for my interview. I was kept waiting more than 15 minutes past my interview time. I was taken to a booth at the back of the restaurant. During my interview the manager who interview me (who couldn’t have been more than 25) was interupted at least 10 times by employees. Half of those times the manager got up from the table and left. At one point the manager was gone for about ten minutes.
The whole thing had a weird vibe. I was ultimately invited to come back for a second interview with another manager. After leaving I decided to decline the interview (this was not a place I wanted to work). I called the restaurant the next day to cancel my interview but I could not get anyone to answer the phone. And yes, I was calling during business hours. I called off and on for approx three hours before I gave up.

    Interview

    Very easy. They ask a bunch of general questions. They do not expect you to stay long due to high turnover in the restaurant industry. Unless you are a felon (or even if you are), you will probably be hired.

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at Outback Steakhouse in July 2017.

    Interview

    Interview scheduled for 2:30 & I walked 2:20. There was 2 other interviews scheduled at 2:30, as well. Because I was the last one to arrive, o was the last one interviewed which wasn't until 3:15. That was annoying. Wish they would have scheduled each interview at a different time. That was the only downer.

    Interview

    Super easy (and fast) interview process. I applied online one afternoon, and the very same day I received a phone call from the manager asking if I would like to come in for an interview. I came in the next day and was hired on the spot. My interviewer asked me obscure, off the wall questions. He didn't ask the basic "What are some of your biggest strengths and weaknesses?" sort of questions. I had 0 experience in working at a restaurant. I only had previous job experience in office, call center, and pharmaceutical careers. He mentioned he normally doesn't hire those without previous server experience, but he really liked my personality.
